Septorhinoplasty during menstruation.

Yes, septoplasty and rhinoplasty can be performed during a woman's menstrual cycle.  There are no pros or cons to having nasal surgery at that time.

The only plastic surgical operation that should not be performed during a patient's menstrual cycle is a labiaplasty or vaginal rejuvination, otherwise I feel it has really no impact.

Septorhinoplasty During Menstruation

There is no advantage or disadvantage to doing rhinoplasty at any time during a woman's cycle. Do the operation when it is convenient for you and your surgeon.

Can Septorhinoplasty Be Performed During Menstruation?

Yes, but some Surgeons believe that this will be a time of increased bleeding if a Rhinoplasty were performed.  Since Rhinoplasty Surgery, IMO, doesn't typically bleed much, I would not hesitate to do the surgery however others may feel differently.

SeptoRhinoplasty During Menstrual Cycle

As long as you feel comfortable enough to undergo facial surgery, then there is no problem with having a septorhinoplasty during your menstrual cycle. It is very common to perform many types of cosmetic surgery on women who are cycling and there are no adverse effects for doing so.

Menstruation and Rhinoplasty

I have performed many Rhinoplasty surgical operations on patients who are menstruating without a single problem. The same response is valid for Septoplasty as well.
